If you had to pick your favorite ice fishing plastic for panfish what would it be?

Ice, started using them around the middle of last season, and pretty much quit using grubs. I target panfish mostly, but I've caught eyes bass pickerel and even suckers on them.

I've had good luck on Maki plastics and the "wedgee" plastic ...this year I bought some 13 Fishing Bernie Superior Soft Plastcs from fishusa...saw on you tube...they're supposed to be infused with scent an very durable....I like durable since some of the others are not very durable....looking forward to trying them out.

Im toying with the idea of snap jigging paddle tail plastics for eyes on erie. The bigger profile might help. Lsst season didnt have much jigging luck just incidental eyes on perch rigs. May even try white tubes

I tried some smaller plastics last winter for the first time, didn't have much success, but I was getting some lookers when live bait wasn't working. I bought some Gulp minnow heads to try this year as well. I'm wondering how they will work compared to the real deal...

I used some custom jigs super finesse, maybe it was an off day. Who makes the dogbone?

For perch I love the mister twister micro nymphs and the micro craws have caught a few :tipup:  The price is right and they are very durable.

I must be doing something wrong. I fish mostly for gills. I have tried many types of soft plastics to catch very few fish. Perch seem to be less finicky but I'm not after perch. Will try again this season.  I will admit, it is much easier to keep a little bag of plastics than a container of spikes, but the spikes are doing it for me.
